Spending an evening with your friends and family watching a movie is always time well spent. There’s just something special about sitting in the cinema seeing the picture flash across the big screen in front of you, with surround sound transporting you into the scene. You don’t have to wait to experience this in a cinema if you have your own home cinema. If you have a spare room at home you can easily create a home theatre.
Here are some tips on how you can do to make sure you get the best experience.
Soundproof Your Space
It can be difficult to focus on your cinema experience when there are loud sounds around you. That’s why it is important to make sure the sound serves this purpose. This problem could be solved by making sure you have carpeting installed. You should also check whether your walls are insulated as it will block noise from outside and keeps the sound in. Insulated walls will not only help you get the whole cinema experience but also help the people in your house to not be disturbed by your movie.
To sum it up, taking the time, money, and effort to properly soundproof your home theatre is a win-win.
Good Lighting Makes a Difference
The best place to set up a home theatre is a room without any windows. This way no sunlight can interrupt your cinema experience. If you don’t have a room without windows, you can also use blackout curtains to darken your room. The lights in your cinema should be soft and they should not leave a glance on your screen. Recessed lighting is best to use.
You could also use LED strips on your floor. This will help you and your friends to get around the room without having to put a light on.
Choose Comfortable Furniture
To enjoy your evening in your new home theatre you will need to have comfortable seats to make the experience more authentic and more relaxed. You should test the furniture before you buy it to make sure you will also enjoy a movie marathon. Make it as comfortable as you can.
You can choose from chairs to armchairs to couches. Don’t forget to create some space where you can put your snacks and drinks.
Use Good Technology
Now you have a comfortable furnished room, with nice lightning and a good sound setting. The next thing you need is good technology to be able to watch your movie. If you choose a high-end large screen you should make sure to hide the wires. Another solution would be to use a projector paint like our Smart Projector Paint contrast.

You’ll also need a Blu-ray player or a system that links to all the many streaming services like Netflix, Disney+, Apple TV.
The last thing you need to take care of is the sound. Surround sound is a major part of having a good movie experience for this purpose youshould have a high-quality sound system installed.
